have looked round all over the forums and other places but cant find a definitive answer anywhere

what need to know if we took the cable internet option only would there be any tv channels included in the feed at no further expense [have seen that channels 2-20 are included on one forum]

we have a property for holiday use only and require no phone or tv service just internet for the security cameras installing which uplink to the internet,we us voip for the phone thru the internet

how do u get to watch the tv feeds if included,do you just split the feed and plug into back of televison

Cable Internet access
The term cable Internet access or Cable Internet refers to the delivery of Internet service over this infrastructure. Cable modems, along with DSL technology, are the two primary types of broadband Internet access.
Bit rate of business cable modem service typically range from 2 megabits per second (Mbit/s) up to 50 Mbit/s or more. The upstream rate on residential cable modem service usually ranges from 384 kilobits per second (kbit/s) to 20 Mbit/s or more. Many cable operators offer different service tiers, some with 'home' and 'business' designations.
There are two potential disadvantages to cable internet:
Like all residential broadband network technologies (e.g. DSL, FTTX, Satellite internet, WiMAX), a fixed channel capacity is shared by a population of users (in the case of cable internet, users in a neighborhood share the available capacity provided by a single coaxial cable line). Therefore, service speed can vary depending on how many people are using the service at the same time. This arrangement allows the network operator to take advantage of statistical multiplexing in order to provide an adequate level of service at an acceptable price. However, the operator has to monitor usage patterns, and scale the network appropriately, to ensure that customers receive adequate service even during peak usage times. Some operators also use a bandwidth cap.

Many cable Internet providers are reluctant to offer cable modem access without tying it to a cable television subscription. They do this by charging higher rates, say $60/month for cable modem only access, than if one bundles it with a cable TV plan where it might be $40/month for cable modem service plus $40/month for cable TV service. This is because you receive free basic TV with just internet service. This has ramifications similar to those of the lack of naked DSL. Cable internet access providers who resell access from cable companies, such as Earthlink, are generally not subject to these higher rates. However, they cannot give you internet access if you don't have cable service.
